"Too much sex" leads college student to sue
Share This Article:
An American student in Boston, Massachusetts, is suing her Roman Catholic college, claiming that she was driven into a suicidal depression as a result of her roommate “having too much sex.” Lindsey Blankmeyer started legal proceedings against Stonehill College after they failed to provide her with alternate living arrangements when she complained that her roommate’s night-time activities were leaving her emotionally and psychologically damaged. Blankmeyer, who had been diagnosed with depression and attention deficit disorder (ADD) prior to enrolling in the college in 2007, said that her peer frequently had sex with her boyfriend mere feet away from her, and that she had been heard to engage in “sexually inappropriate video chatting.” According to the lawsuit, Stonehill ‘s decision to refuse her request for a single room forced the student into a “deep and suicidal depression,” in the weeks and months that followed. The bedroom antics were so detrimental to Blankmeyer welfare that she eventually chose to move into a hotel whilst she was studying, and completed her final semester of college from her New York home. The lawsuit goes onto say that the ordeal left the student in need of, “Extensive psychiatric and medical treatment.” Stonehill College has hit back at Blankmeyer’s claims that they tried to move her to “inappropriate locations,” saying that they responded “swiftly and professionally,” when the complaint was first filed. According to a spokesperson for the institution, they initially tried to resolve the dispute through mediation, before proceeding to offer the student a choice of “multiple” new rooms, and said that, “At no time did the student notify college staff that her concern involved her roommate’s sexual activity.”
